Es conocido que los musculos tenares que participan en la oposicion del pulgar son el ACP, el oponente del pulgar (OP) y la cabeza superficial del musculo flexor corto del pulgar (FCP), y que la fraccion de la tension de estos musculos es de 3,8% (PCSA 6.0 [cm.sup.2]) (Baek et al., 1999).
By combining PCSA and RTV 655, two space-qualified materials used previously for aerospace missions [33-39], it is possible to create compound materials with unique and tunable physical and thermal properties applicable to future space exploration as well as terrestrial applications requiring expandable lightweight insulating material.
For the evaluation of the seated biceps curl exercise, the forward dynamics simulations could also only be solved after a number of adjustments had been made to the model, such as increasing the pCSA of the muscles, manipulating muscle origins and insertions, and decreasing the joint stiffness in the forwards dynamics simulations.
The proposed pre-crash sensing and avoidance (PCSA) algorithm consist of following steps.
